At long last, it appears my latest Jack Patterson Suspense/Thriller, A Game of Inches is a reality. Autographed copies are available at my website, Amazon is finally shipping its pre-orders of hard copies, and local independent bookstores can get books from my publisher, Beaufort Books.

Early Reviews:

Five Star reviews of A Game of Inches are pouring in. Here’s a sampling:

A Game of Inches’ was simply spectacular.” Paul Finebaum, ESPN radio host and sportswriter.
“Smart, Fast-Paced Story Telling.” T.D. Phillips, Retired Athletic Director of Clemson.
A plot bursting with danger and complication…. Top 5 Reads of the Summer….This award-winning writer, and former mayor of Little Rock, gives us his best and most complex novel to date.” Dannye Powell,Charlotte Observer
“Webb Hubbell delivers the goods!” Steve Spruill, author of Ice Men: A Novel of the Korean War.
“He mystifies you, he frightens you, he forces you to consider all possibilities but above all, he entertains you!” — Harry Thomason, producer of Designing Women and Evening Shade.

“The recently published A Game of Inches is his best yet. Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Events in August and September: 

I am traveling to Little Rock for the last weekend in August to appear at the Barnes and Noble in West Little Rock and Woodworth’s in the Heights. Please come by, pull up a chair and talk a spell. I will be at the Burlington, NC Barnes and Noble in late September. I will be in DC in the middle of September for a couple of book clubs.

Now that I am assured that books are available and that they meet Beaufort and my standards I will be scheduling other events, and if you would be interested in having me speak to your organization, book club, or university please contact me at [email protected].

Webb Hubbell: Friends in High Places Book CoverPolitics. The conventions are over and we know who the candidates for all four major parties will be. A person wrote in and asked if I was going to weigh in now. My response was to watch the Olympics and enjoy the rest of the summer.

A Favor To Ask. After you read A Game of Inches and enjoyed it like so many who are saying “this one is the best of the three” please write a review on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Powell’s, or Goodreads website even if all you do is award it five stars.

A second way to help is to drop by your local bookstore and suggest they carry all three of the award-winning Jack Patterson Thrillers: When Men Betray, Ginger Snaps, and A Game of Inches.

Most importantly, tell your friends, your book club, and your business organization what many are writing — that it is a “must read” and “one of the top summer reads.”

Football InchGiveAways.  I have sponsored a second giveaway of three autographed copies of A Game of Inches on GoodReads. Sign up today. I have also sponsored on Facebook asking that people post a picture that depicts A Game of Inches like the one seen to the left. The three top winners will receive a free autographed copy.

Speaking Opportunities. My September calendar is not that full. There is room for more opportunities. We haven’t started to put together our fall schedule yet so if you would like me to speak to your organization, university, or church contact either [email protected] or me at [email protected]. If you would like to schedule a book signing, other book related event, or a media interview contact [email protected]
